Admission Application Requirements for Military Students
GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
Julian King University is committed to providing Christ-centered education to veterans, dependents of active duty military and veterans, and to future leaders in the military.
As a Christ-centered institution, we will approve Veterans Educational Benefits provided by the Montgomery GI Bill, the Post-9/11 GI Bill, and Vocational Rehabilitation.
All of the traditional and on campus-based associate and bachelor programs available through our College of Undergraduate Studies will approve payment of Post-9/11 GI Bill education benefits. In most cases — provided you are receiving 100% of the benefit — the Post-9/11 GI Bill covers the full cost of tuition and fees.
Traditional undergraduate students who are taking classes on campus are eligible to participate in JKU Army and Air Force programs and receive scholarships. If you are interested in using your VA-GI Bill benefits, or the benefits of a parent or guardian in JKU’s College of Undergraduate Studies, please contact our Undergraduate Office of Admission.
Financial aid counselors and military benefits advisors receive extensive, on-going training, and are well equipped to assist students on the financial aid, tuition assistance, and other various military and VA benefits requirements.
Financial aid deadlines
The priority application deadline for financial aid and scholarship consideration is April 1 for the fall semester and November 1 for the spring semester. However, JKU will continue to accept applications after these deadlines until our enrollment capacity is reached.
JKU sets test scores and grade point averages as our minimum level of acceptance for traditional freshman admissions. Normally, the minimum requirements for admission are:
- 2.8 GPA;
- A strong spiritual recommendation; and
- Admission essay responses
Students who do not meet these minimum requirements are encouraged to apply and the University will consider their application under a committee review process which may include a personal interview. Factors such as essay content, recommendation content, and extracurricular activity all contribute to an individual admission decision.
How to apply for admission
- Complete your Application for Admission, including essays

- It is important to apply for financial aid and student aid early by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon after October 1 as possible.
